Waiting with baited breath for the new Eaton sourced remaster of the following night. And hopefully more ungrades of muddy early '69 soundboards...

Rather than '69, it appears we have a lot of '76 ahead of us...

Charlie Miller says:
"Here is a list of the shows from 1976 that will be circulated by me over the next few months (Keep in mind that some shows have multiple aud + sbd sources that will be released:

6/14/76
6/19/76
6/21/76
6/22/76
6/24/76
6/26/76
6/27/76
6/28/76
6/29/76
7/12/76
7/13/76
7/14/76
7/16/76
7/17/76
7/18/76
8/4/76
9/30/76
10/1/76
10/3/76

There's probably some more in there that I can't remember right now.

There's also new boards of:
2/22/69
12/1/73
3/2/81
3/3/81
3/13/81
3/14/81
5/17/81
2/17/82
3/13/82

Plus David Gans has recently given me a bunch of shows which will be circulated after he airs them on the KPFA Marathon. (Please remember to donate to KPFA.)"

The new sources did not come from Rob Eaton. I got them elsewhere.

Okay, and thank you nonetheless Charlie!

Your remasters of early 1969 performances are very appreciated! I don't know of a time period more worthy of sonic attention. These are very important shows, however the sound quality of most of what circulates from this period is muddy and difficult to enjoy. Your treatment of the January Avalon shows transformed muddy, sonically compromised music into real treasures. Ditto for these classic Dream Bowl performances.

Are there improved sources for more of the early '69 shows? We'd all love to hear more of these February 1969 shows in the same brilliance and clarity as your recent upgrades.

Thanks again!!!

Hey guys - Thanks for pointing out these CM remasters. I missed the TJIs!

These were always, "listen once, get an idea of what happened and move on" shows. Hard to enjoy because in the back of my mind I knew there were shows from other dates which sound much better and would be more enjoyable. Change is good....

me too CH...this is keeping me up at night waiting to hear a remaster of one of my top ten shows of '69!

a remaster of some other early '69 would be a friggin' dream come true. especially the 2/4-7/69 run of shows. 2/6 circulates in horrendous quality right now...

Upgrades are always nice. Cant wait myself...

Allow me to ask again: Does anyone know the story behind
the whole "MOTHERFUCKERS!" thing that Phil screams after
Doin That RaaaaaaaaaaGA? Who is he screaming at? His
bandmates? or the audience? or a cop? an individual???

this show is great (as is the 22nd). i found a great if not lengthy blog post about these Dream Bowl shows. only a Head could appreciate the lengths this guy has gone to to track down the info on some obscure Dead shows from '69.

"obscure Dead shows from '69?"

Well those wouldn't include either of the Dream Bowl performances. 2/22/69 is a top-ten candidate for 1969.

To some people, any Dead show from 1969 is obscure...

i guess "obscure" is a relative term when talking about the Dead. i'll have to watch my wording more carefully next time :-)

"Obscure" obviously is a relative term, though I'm not sure how applicable it remains to Grateful Dead shows (certainly not to either of the Dream Bowl performances), with almost everything that has traded catalogued here and at one's fingertips. Still there is some music that has circulated at one time or another that is not achived here. I would consider much of that obscure. It is available if you know where to look, and all you have to do is ask.

There certainly are some performances from 1969 that fly under the radar of many folks, but usually there is a reason for this (poor sound quality, sketchy musicianship, brevity, etc.) These shows garner little attention in this community, however each is worth listening to if you are an afficionado of the early era...


I certainly wouldn't call this Vegas show obscure, it was available as a commercially released bootleg at one point. It has major pitch issues and other sonic anomalies. I don't think the Grateful Dead felt comfortable at this venue, but it's certainly worth checking out. Particularly Dark Star and The Eleven:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-03-29.sbd.vinson.1764.sbeok.shnf


There are several bad cuts and quite a bit of hiss, however this Tuscon performance is interesting for the Main Ten Jam during Dark Star. Further evidence that the music attributed to 6/19/68 is actually from 1969:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-04-11.sbd.cotsman.15404.sbeok.shnf


Again, not obscure, but this interesting performance has only relatively recently been available here. Sound quality is quite good:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1969-07-03.sbd.miller.92771.sbeok.flac16


Ditto for this fine performance:

Interesting. And I'd always thought it was an actual bowling alley.
